unicycle

		i've been trying to learn the unicyle recently.
		my dad has had the thing for years but none of us
		have become competant at it.

		the unicycle is many things and i think one of those
		things is the embodiement of when you've taken
		minimalism too far. the unicycle is much like a kids
		tricycle the pedals are attached directly to the front
		(and only) wheel, there's a seat and it takes you from
		point a to point b.
		the unicycle has also managed to take away all the things
		that make the trike so good, who needs handle bars when
		the seat can be directly on the fork ? who needs 3 wheels
		when you can have just one ? why steer with moving parts
		when you can steer with your body ? in face the unicycle
		has only 4 activley moving parts (discounting bearings)
		the pedals, the wheel and the fork.
